FOIA Advisory Committee Meeting Round-up

On Tuesday, October 20, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee held its sixth meeting in the Archivist’s Reception Room. The purpose of the meeting was for the Committee’s three subcommittees – Oversight and Accountability, FOIA Fees, and Proactive Disclosure – to provide updates on their work.

As the Committee moves into the backstretch of its initial two year charter, the Committee’s focus is turning towards the content and structure of the advice regarding the government-wide administration of FOIA it wants to provide to the Archivist of the United States. For those of you who were not able to attend, OGIS live-Tweeted the meeting. Click on the picture below to read our updates.


A video of the meeting will soon be available on the National Archives and Records Administration YouTube Account. We also will post the meeting minutes on the Committee’s webpage.

We hope you will mark your calendars for the next Committee meeting on Tuesday, January 26, 2016. If you have any thoughts to share with the Committee before then, please submit them here.
